Whew! Well another Christmas bites the dust! We had 17 for Christmas dinner and managed to get everyone at the same table… (three tables pushed together!) It was a tight squeeze but we fit (and we took family togetherness to a whole new level) but it was still fun ….there was a long discussion about renting a hall next year, inviting the whole family and having everyone bring a contribution to the meal. Then after dinner we could set up the hall with game stations…or dancing…We liked that idea, as there are getting to be more and more people added to the family every year as the cousins are now getting married and having babies. Food for thought….
Carrie, my step-daughter, loved the tablecloth/quilt that I made for her….
AND a BIG thank you to Jenny from Elefantz for the Chocolate Mousse Recipe…It was a HUGE success as everyone loved it and it was agreed that it should become an annual Christmas staple! (the recipe is on Jenny’s blog).
And finally these beach shots taken with Erin’s new camera (trying out the action setting). After all the food was prepared and the turkey was cooking, Rhett and Erin, Toby and Maggie and Hayley took Lola to the beach for a run.
It was a gorgeous day on Vancouver Island!
Maggie and boyfriend, Toby.
I’m sure Rhett will be sending this picture to his family in Winnipeg, Manitoba where they have lots of snow and minus temperatures! Our weather is one of the perks about living here.
Hayley’s boyfriend, Dan is spending Christmas with his family in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan….it’s REALLY cold there….I think next year, Dan needs to try a West Coast Christmas too…
So that was our Christmas day- food (lots of it), family (lots of them!) and fun (always that)! Hope your Christmas was just as good….BUT boy, I’m so glad it’s over for another year!
Have a Super Sale Saturday and Happy Quilting!
